AGU Welcomes You to San Francisco

San Francisco is often called “Everybody’s Favorite City,” a title earned by its scenic beauty, cultural attractions, diverse communities, and world-class cuisine. Measuring 49 square miles, this very walkable city is dotted with landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Alcatraz, and the largest Chinatown in the United States. A stroll of the city’s streets can lead from Union Square to North Beach to Fisherman’s Wharf, with intriguing neighborhoods to explore at every turn. Views of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay are often laced with fog, creating a romantic mood in this most European of American cities.  We look forward to having you join us in San Francisco for the 2011 AGU Fall Meeting.

The Moscone Center

Fall Meeting events will take place throughout the Moscone Center‘s West, South, and North buildings.  The Moscone Center is located at the edge of the city’s dynamic South of Market district and just four blocks from Union Square, the city’s vibrant shopping district, and the Powell Street cable car to Nob Hill, Chinatown, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
